… alle Verhältnisse umzuwerfen, in denen der Mensch ein erniedrigtes, ein geknechtetes, ein verlassenes, ein verächtliches Wesen ist … (Marx)

1.) ESSF berichtet von der Ermordung eines Community-Aktivisten in Bamako/Mali:

„Ce dimanche 15 novembre 2009, un habitant de Kognoumani du nom de Issa Diarra, membre de l’Union des associations et des coordinations d’associations pour la défense et le droit des démunis (UACADDDD), vient d’être assassiné par un groupe d’individus au service de la mairie de la commune I du District de Bamako.

En effet, depuis un certain moment, la mairie de la commune I est opposée aux habitants de Kognoumani à propos des 84 HA. En dépit du fait que l’affaire soit pendante devant les tribunaux, la mairie refuse de se soumettre à une décision de justice et envoie régulièrement la police sur le terrain. Lassée de ce non respect de la justice par l’autorité communale, celle-ci refusa à son tour d’exécuter les mauvais ordres.

C’est ainsi qu’une milice fut constituée et armée par la mairie prête à tirer sur la population. Ce dimanche matin, lors d’une réunion sur les 84 ha un groupe de badauds parmi lesquels Ousmane Coulibaly et Modibo Diarra, militaire et sergent de grade attaquent les habitants à coup de fusil, l’arme de Ousmane Coulibaly, un pistolet atteint mortellement Issa Diarra au coud qui mourra par la suite. L’arme de l’assassin est entre les mains de la population de même que la carte professionnelle militaire du sergent Modibo Diarra.“

2.) Mehr antigewerkschaftliche Repression in Guatemala (Quelle: IGB):

„The ITUC has strongly condemned the illegal detention on 6 November of a group of women trade unionists from the Guatemalan labour, indigenous and campesino movement, MSICG. This illegal act of intimidation and mistreatment represents a blatant violation of workers’ fundamental rights.

The women trade union leaders had gone to the Labour Ministry to denounce the constant human and trade union rights violations committed by large multinational fruit companies operating in Guatemala. The women were held against their will in the entrance of the Labour Ministry when security guards were ordered to lock the door to the building and the gates giving onto the street, trapping the women inside. During their illegal detention, staff at the ministry photographed and filmed the women trade unionists without their consent, as well as insulting and mistreating them.“

Januar in Berlin eine Veranstaltung zum Thema „Wer be­zahlt die An­ti­deut­schen“ machen wolllen … dabei wissen doch alle, dass die belgisch-norwegische Keramikindustrie dahintersteckt und alle, die anderes behaupten auch zu IHNEN gehören … mehr zum Thema Verschwörungstheorien auf dem NPD-Blog

Freiheit für die Führung der Haft-Tapeh-Gewerkschaft und für Pedram Nasrollahi!

UPDATE! Independent Sugar Union Leaders in Iran Now Behind Bars – Act Now!

The leaders of Iran’s independent sugarworkers union are now in prison in the city of Dezful, serving sentences for their trade union activity. In a drive to destroy the union established last year by workers at the giant Haft Tapeh plantation/refining sugar complex, a court on October 12 sentenced 5 union leaders to immediate prison terms on charges stemming from October 2007. Three leaders convicted for their union activity last year for „endangering national security“ in connection with worker action in 2008 had their sentences overturned on appeal in September. Two union officers, president Ali Nejati and communications officer Reza Rakhshan, both of whom face lengthy prison sentences, were still awaiting the outcome of their appeal when the court in the city of Dezful sentenced them on the similar 2007 charges.

Ghorban Alipour, Feridoun Nikoufard, Jalil Ahmadi, and Ali Nejati were all sentenced to 6 months‘ immediate imprisonment and 6 months suspended sentences over 5 years; during which time they are barred from union activity. Mohammad Heydari Mehr received a 4-month term, 8 months suspended. Ali Nejati must serve his suspended sentence as prison time, meaning he faces an immediate one-year prison term. Should he lose his appeal on the 2008 conviction, his sentence could stretch to over 2 years. Previously we had reported that Nejat Dehli was among those sentenced. Recent information has established that Dehli, alone among the 6, was acquitted by the Court. Reza Rakhshan is still awaiting the final sentencing in his case.

Haft Tapeh workers in recent years have repeatedly had to resort to strikes and other actions to claim huge wage arrears and protest deteriorating working conditions. The union was officially founded in June 2008 following a 42-day strike to demand long-standing arrears. The Haft Tapeh union is an IUF affiliate.

The regime is clearly determined to crush the union by putting its entire leadership behind bars.

The fate of imprisoned transport and teachers‘ union activists shows that the Haft Tapeh prisoners risk prolonged physical and psychological abuse. The IUF urges all defenders of democratic and trade union rights to mobilize in their defense.

Act Now! – CLICK HERE to send a message to the Iranian state and judicial authorities, calling on them to immediately and unconditionally release the jailed unionists and annul their sentences, and drop all charges against Reza Rakhshan. Please note that some messages may bounce back – do not be discouraged! Server overload is a common condition in Iran – some messages will get through, making the point that the persecuted trade unionists enjoy international support. The Haft Tapeh union leaders are also supported by Amnesty International.

You can also send a message to the Iranian embassy or diplomatic representation in your country – or pay them a visit! A complete list of embassies/consulates is available here, and you can generally find e-mail addresses by searching the internet for the individual representation in your

Pedram Nasrollahi rearrested!

The following is a statement issued by Iranian Workers’ Solidarity Network activists in Sanandaj on the recent arrest of Pedram Nasrollahi, a Kurdish labour activist. Pedram was released on bail earlier this year (April 6 2009) from prison in Sanandaj, the capital of the Iranian province of Kurdistan.

Worker comrades

Pedram Nasrollahi has been transferred to the quarantine of Sanandaj’s central prison and is being held under very harsh conditions. It is necessary that all labour activists take action quickly for the unconditional release of this labour activist as soon as possible.

Obviously, in order to continue exploiting and plundering the wages of us workers, the capitalist system will do anything. Only our unity in this proletarian fight can force the onslaught of repression and arrests of activists into a retreat.

Long live proletarian internationalism!
